Update on Rik.
Sadly, Rik lost his battle with cancer much sooner than he anticipated, and left us on December 6, 2009. In his memory, his closest friends got together for a wake on December 14. It was good to meet some of the people with whom Rik shared his life. I think he finally saw the value of Apple one night at his bedside when his laptop crashed and the Mac kept going. Of course, he’d never let on. 🙂
Rik had a strong interest in graffiti, to the point where he had created a huge database of graffiti found in the Brisbane area and beyond. This website contains thousands of photos that he primarily took and uploaded. He always had his camera with him. This is the Rik I knew and loved. I will miss this kindhearted soul, but at least his suffering is over.
